Shekhar Suman’s son actor Adhyayan Suman has responded to the criticism being received by Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar co-actor Sharmin Shegal over her performance in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali series.

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Adhyayan gave his opinion on the backlash against Sharmin. “I think it’s very important to not live in a bubble. It’s very important to accept any sort of reality, not just Heeramandi, per se. It’s very important to understand who you are, it’s very important to understand whether you have it in you to fight the next 15-20 years. It’s important for you to not lie to yourself.”

Adhyayan, who returned to the screen with Heeramandi after being written off by the audiences, said, “If she is being criticised for her performance, she should come out and speak to people. The audiences are very gentle, they’ll give you another chance if they feel you’ve worked hard.”

Recently, there were comments against Sharmin, who is also Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece, that she had been cast in the series because of nepotism. She was also being criticised for her “expressionless” performance. Sharmin broke her silence around the trolling, and appeared to defend her acting. She told News18, “I had given my all to Alamzeb’s character. We tend to fixate on the negatives but there are so many positives that have also come along, which we don’t talk about. It’s perhaps not interesting enough to talk about positives and we tend to look over them to some degree.”

Netflix recently announced the second season of the Bhansali series.
